Librarians irked colleague sent unverified Palin e-mail

By LAURA GREEN

Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

Thursday, September 11, 2008

A Palm Beach County School District library manager set off an e-mail controversy this week when she sent school librarians a list of books Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin allegedly tried to ban as mayor of a small Alaska town.

Problem was the list turned out to be a hoax. It included Harry Potter books that weren't yet published when Palin had an exchange with the Wasilla librarian about removing books.

The list might be fake but it has to be accurate because it was on the internet!

She didn't read the whole thing but “felt obligated to speak out.” Now we have every idiot from Olberman to Matt Damon constantly repeating her.

Librarians, particularly the “political types”, watch books, but they don’t necessarily read them, nor should they be expected to have any understanding of their content ~ e.g. standards of evidence, date and time relationships, etc.

I see the rat tracks of Dan Rather: "The list is fake but the story is true."

she must be an awful librarian.
one look at the books on the list should have alerted her.

she was just doing her part for the obama team.

I am a librarian and a conservative- a very rare breed indeed. Thankfully I work mostly with genealogy and local history so I don’t have to deal with the dregs.

.....it’s worth remembering that librarians have refused to co-operate with the FBI in terrorist surveillance.

....they’re as bad as the ACLU

Pelser apologized to Kozlow and acknowledged she made a mistake.

"I looked at the e-mail and immediately reacted to the banned books and did not stop to check the entire e-mail," she said Thursday. "And I should have done that."

---snip---

So where did that list of books Pelser circulated come from? It appears to be a compilation of books that have been banned from libraries around the country at one time or another.

Why does she have to double-check her own list, unless she didn't write it?

Conclusion: The list of books came from the DNC. She didn't check the list before she forwarded it.

DNC Playbook Tactic: Identical to the 'former republicans' like Barney Smith who prefaced 0bama's convention speech.

Too bad the librarian didn't do enough reading to figure out she was passing along bogus info....

In two short weeks, the MSM has had more investigators investigating Sarah Palin than they have Obama in two years!

Oooh! Let's get to the bottom of this book banning! BY GOD! If she should become president, no book will be safe from her evil clutches!

Meanwhile, black liberation theology, Rev. Wright, Chicago style machine politician, Saul Alinsky style political organizing, Rezko, land deals, Michelle's administrative plan to keep homeless and other indigents from utilizing her hospital's ER, Railia Odinga, ....Nope, nothing HERE to investigate, folks! Get your asses up to Alaska where you can do some REAL good and get to the bottom of what this Palin woman has been up to! The book banning thing was a good start. Maybe someone can check the date of Willow's last period. She just might be pregnant, too. Oh, check Piper's last year's report card! No better yet. See if she's ever been sent to the principals office!

Well, now I know there are at least two of us!

I deal with moonbats (on both sides of the desk) all day, since I work in an environmental sciences library. :-o

What a maroon. It must be fun to be shown to be a fool in front of the whole country.

Goes right along with her right to be used as a tool by Obama’s political machine. Maybe if she were to lose her job it might knock some sense into her. Do these people who circulate these emails have any common sense at all?

Pelser is just your typical Dimocrat, doesn’t know her donkey from a hole in the ground.

When a liberal speaks, one can always find a joke in what they said.

But it’s not the accuracy of the list that’s important, it’s the seriousness of the charge.

Why is this librarian still drawing a government paycheck?

It seems to me that she has just used government property to advance one candidate at the expense of another, and also has been caught goofing off while she was being paid to actually function as a librarian.

One of the heads of the ALA is/was Anne Sparanese, a Castroite operative since the days of the Venceremos Brigade, she wrote for the Communist Party paper, and was buddy-buddy with one of Hillary’s red pals, Prof. Johnetta Cole, also a VB leader and top Castroite propagandist.

Houston - we have a problem!

Don’t forget the librarian who sleeps in the White House.
